3 year downhill stumble that ends in 800 layoffs

Sales Representative (Current Employee) Wellesley, MA (US)

ProsFair benefits though they got cut back over the years. Good work life balance for most

ConsBad career development. Spent way too much on sales and sponsorships. HR department goes by the book when it benefits them but makes excuses when it doesn't. Badly run and now employees not involved in the decisions are paying for it. Employees that survive the layoff, including the new college leadership people, should take note and get out quick as it will get worse.

Advice to Senior ManagementAccept the blame for your bad decisions, get rid of senior managers who killed the business, and use the money saved to give more to the people you are throwing out on the street, they deserve it more

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not the place it used to be

    (Former Employee)

    I worked at Sun Life


    Pros: The work/life balance and benefits were good. There was a pension plan… Cons: No career progression, rampant favoritism where promotions and raises are only given to those put on the fast track and not based on actual skills,… Advice to Senior Management: Take a good look at the turnover and staffing levels. Sometime clearly needs to change and nothing has been done despite the satisfaction surveys.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
